Ro Croxford Rogers
Living on the western edge of Wales, my love of the coastline is central to my work. Observations and experiences within that landscape, a meeting place between land and sea,
provide a source of ideas, which are re-worked in the studio.
Largely abstract, with elements of figuration, the paintings emerge from an intuitive enquiry into the physicality of materials. The process of making - layering, concealing, revealing, eroding - reflects the Earth’s elemental processes; providing the interface with which to translate subtle connections between the outer physical landscape and the inner mindscape.
Based in Goodwick, Ro is showing at Phillipa Sibert’s studio for this event.

Sophie Myfanwy Wellan
In my work i seek to deal with the metaphysical, working instinctively and constantly trying to marry the spiritual and the physical in an attempt to produce work which possesses a deeper truth and a dynamic tension.
My work contains ideas of ritual, power, transformation and the remarkable connection between all things, attempting to retain a sense of personal 'connectedness' through the language of materials and the spiritual nature of substance, which is a strong motivation in my work.
